An antique dealer posing as a clergyman to help his business turn a larger profit is one of the con artists, poachers and thieves who inhabit the rustic community introduced in these seven stories. According to PW , ``Dahl shrewdly uses ostensibly simple fables as vehicles for richly mordant examinations of human foibles.'' (Apr.)
